5/20 Online Learning Letter




Dear HAS Parents,

As one of the oldest and most established international schools in Hsinchu, HAS has experienced many elations and faced many challenges since its opening in 2005. It has welcomed fantastic growth in Hsinchu and, since January of 2020, has weathered the challenges imposed by COVID. Throughout this time, our HAS faculty and staff, students, and parent community have ensured that HAS stays strong, no matter the challenge.

With the recent resurgence of COVID in Taiwan, we are driven to make decisions that prioritize our community's safety while also ensuring our student's academic progress remains as unhindered as possible. We are grateful that we have continued to facilitate your child's education in person up until this point; however, we must comply with government regulations that apply to all schools in Hsinchu. This email will entail the roadmap regarding the completion of our academic year:

High School and Middle School (Grade 5-12)

Our high school and middle school will be moving to online learning from 05/23 - to 05/27. This may be extended following future government regulations. Our teachers are currently working to establish a plan for their respective finals should we remain online the following week (05/30 - 06/02). We ask that you ensure your child remains engaged with their teacher during online class, as teachers may adapt and change assessments following online learning.

Elementary School (Grade 1-4)

The elementary school will remain in online learning for the remainder of the academic year (05/20 - 06/02). Our elementary teachers have begun establishing and implementing online classes for their respective grade levels.

Regarding textbook return for elementary students, we will establish a time on 06/02, between 8:30 am -11:00 am, for students to return to campus, pick up any personal belongings, and return textbooks and locker keys. There will be no school bus service on this day, nor an established class.

We thank you, our HAS community, for your patience and understanding regarding the school's adaptation to the ever-changing COVID landscape. We will keep you updated with any future updates and hope you and your family remain safe, happy, and healthy during this difficult time. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Mitchell Hall

Vice-Principal

親愛的家長您好:

首先,感謝您對本校的支持,新竹美國學校是大新竹地區辦學最久的外僑學校之一。自2005年開辦以來,我們曾獲取無數讚賞也承受過許多考驗。自2020年初歷經新冠肺炎疫情嚴峻的挑戰至今,相信新竹美國學校的每一分子,都擁有著強韌的毅力面對任何的挑戰。

近日來台灣新冠肺炎進入廣泛社區流行,為考量學生健康,不影響學生受教權,學校配合政府防疫政策,上課方式將採居家遠距教學,家長們對孩子教育的費心及配合,在此致上最誠摯的敬意。以下為各學部上課方式調整:

高中部及中學部 (5年級至12年級)

高中及中學部,將自5/23至5/27日採居家遠距教學。5/30至6/2上課方式未定,將依新竹市政府公告調整。倘若5/30至6/2期末考週仍為居家遠距教學,老師們已開始規畫考試方式,請您放心。請您協助確認孩子在遠距上課期間,確實到課並進行課程互動,老師可能依學生上課情形,調整課程或於課後進行學習評量。

小學部(1年級至4年級)

由於小學生疫苗防護力不足,小學部將自5/20至6/2日進行居家遠距教學。小學老師們已建置完成各年級線上教學平台。

學生期末歸還教科書及置物櫃鑰匙,將訂於6/2(星期四)上午8:30至11:00期間進行,學生可返校整理個人用品及還書,當天不上課、沒有校車服務,請您見諒。

在這疫病爆發的非常時間,感謝您對防疫政策的配合與體諒,讓我們用更多愛與關懷來擁抱彼此,若因防疫政策,上課方式有任何變動調整,我們將儘快通知您,讓我們隨時保持聯繫,衷心期盼疫情能早日平息,大家平安健康。若有任何疑問,歡迎您隨時與我聯繫。

敬祝

順心平安

副校長 Mr. Hall
